They have everything you'll want to take home with you. Their prices are cheap and they have great goodies for all your family and friends back home. I've spent so much money there I should buy stock in it. It's my favorite place to spend money.

A trip to the Smokies isn't complete without stopping in here. I'm not sure how long this place has been here but I'm in my late 40's and it's been here as long as I can remember. The original store burnt a few years ago and it was rebuilt and modernized. This is one of those stores you remember going... More

We recently went to the Three Bears General Store to have old time photos taken with my sister, step sister, and our significant others. Not only did the pictures turn out so much better than we ever could have expected, Jessie Y truly went out of her way to make sure we all had a blast! She took some great... More

We love coming to see the bears but they look so sluggish and over weight. The store is always nice and if you eat at Sawyer's next door you get a free piece of fudge. We've visited twice and had a pleasant experience both times

Well, we're glad you enjoyed your visits! We assure you the bears are very well cared for and also fed well, but like some humans, being in captivity can effect the waistlines! More

We come here every time we visit Pigeon Forge. They have a lot of neat souvenirs and it is a huge store. They have a little bit of everything and they have lots of neat christmas items upstairs. You can also see live bears for $3 a person.

This store combines a great deal items that Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg is known for. There is something for everyone in here. The fudge is delicious. There are craft items, clothing, housewares, toys and lots of Christmas items upstairs! Great place to stop and get your souvenirs!

On a recent trip (October 2016) my husband and I wanted to take Old Time photos but didn't know which place to choose there were so many! We decided on the Three Bears gift shop and couldn't be more pleased! We told them what kind we wanted to take and they were very helpful. They told us how to pose... More

Huge souvenir, trinket, gift, t-shirt, memorabilia, two-story stuff store that has anything and everything you think you may or may not need. A small concession stand is also available for food and drink purchases. Probably can't see everything that is offered but it is fun to shop. However, did see the bears....I felt a little sad. Bears seem to just... More

Thank you, we're pleased you enjoyed your visit with us! Our bears are very well cared for, perhaps even a bit spoiled, but we can see why one would think they look a bit melancholy. More

This place has it all; ice cream, fudge, t shirts, everything, including a ringer for Santa who sold the tickets to see the three bears. Out grandson wanted to see bears, and we were not going into the park, so this was a guaranteed way to see bears! They were in a habitat that was like a zoo, large and... More
